JAY-Z will appear as the marquee guest on the debut episode of The Van Jones Show on CNN at 7 p.m. ET on Saturday, Jan. 27, CNN said in a press release.
Leading the 2018 Grammy Awards with eight nominations, cultural icon JAY-Z will sit down for an exclusive interview with Van Jones as the two discuss their shared activism and explore the themes of JAY-Z’s most recent album, 4:44, ranging from racial and social issues to financial knowledge and responsibility.
Airing twice monthly, The Van Jones Show will continue to build on the success of CNN’s The Messy Truth with Van Jones.
The new program will highlight Jones’s unique take on the current administration and explore the major issues and movements that will shape the 2018 and 2020 elections. Jones will feature political and cultural guests and include raw conversations with Americans from across the country and political spectrum.
